Retention boxes & suspension packaging for reduced void fill & the ultimate protection

Here at Datec you’ll find a comprehensive range of retention packaging systems designed and developed to give maximum product protection and professional presentation. Retention packaging is a system which retains a product in the centre of a carton without the need for expensive voidfil and cushioning materials, not only creating a crumple zone around the item but also presenting the product in a very professional manner.

Retention packaging systems minimise packing materials down to a thin sheet of clear film which, presents your product in a clean and tidy manner with the minimum amount of wasted packaging. There are generally two types of retention packaging; one uses a sheet of film which is pre-glued to a cardboard base, the other utilises a machine to wrap a plastic film around both the product and the cardboard base. This cardboard base is then fitted into an outer transit box creating a high-performance shipping solution that protects your product like no other.

Suspension Packaging

The Super-Soft Packaging System for the most Delicate Items

Suspension packaging is a three-part system that is similar in principle to a retention packaging system, the difference being that the item being packed is sandwiched between two layers of polythene film and suspended in the centre of the carton. The two layers of film act in a similar way to suspension on a car, ironing out the bumps and bashes your parcel encounters during a transit period. Suspension packaging inserts are often used for larger and more delicate products that need softer cushioning than other protective packaging can give.
